The History of Bees-author Maja Lunde and award winning illustrator Lisa Aisato have created an unforgettable story in 24 chapters. Sparkling and sad, packed with mystery, snow and surprises – this sumptuous full-color illustrated book is bound to be an instant family favorite, and a cherished Holiday tradition for book lovers of all ages.

Christmas Eve is approaching. It is also the day Christian will turn eleven years old. Usually it is the best day of the year, filled with the fantastic aroma of gingersnaps and tangerines, the sound of a crackling fire, the decorated Christmas tree and the flickering candlelight. All the things that make up Christmas. But this year nothing is as usual. Christian and his family mourn the death of his big sister, and Christian feels that Christmas has just been cancelled. Then one day Christian meets the happy and Christmas-loving Hedwig and he begins to believe that perhaps there will be Christmas after all. But there’s something strange about Hedwig’s house, and who is the old man who is lurking around the house all the time?

The Snow Sister reflects the feeling of Christmas you recognize from Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol and stories by H.C. Andersen.
